V&A museum and unpacking update

This amazing chandelier is a glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. Last week, I spent a day at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I specifically went to look at the fashion and costume exhibits because Roxi and I are really into sewing right now. Well, gathering ideas for sewing anyway ;-) While I was there, I had […]

At the Tate Modern

Sometimes I feel like this: Venus of the Rags by Michelangelo Pistoletto. Edited to add: I forgot to mention that I saw this interesting exhibit–Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera.
